User Rating:  / 0

This week Year 3 have been extremely busy completing their Art in a Day unit to end their Ancient Greek Topic. The children have been designing, making and painting clay pots. The children had to research the shapes, colours and patterns to inspire their own pots. They learnt all about how Greek pots told stories about the past. They had to us their BLP skills to help them succeed. For example, perseverance when they joined their handles to their pots. Some of the children even painted images of Greek athletes on theirs!

Teeth

User Rating:  / 1

Did you know humans have up to 32 teeth?

We even have lots of different types that do different jobs. For example, our canine teeth are for tearing meat whereas our molars are for grinding our food. Today we have set up on experiment linked to teeth hygiene. We have placed some hard boiled eggs in vinegar to observe what happens over a few days. The shell on the egg acts like the enamel on our teeth, both protect. We made some predictions about what will happen. What do you think? Some of us thought the shell will go soft, some thought the shell will dissolve and some thought it would crack.

We have returned from our half term break fully refreshed to carry on with our exciting learning opportunities here at WHCPS. Like the weather outside our Topic for this term has changed. It's linked to weather too ... extreme weather!

The children will be introduced to the six main types of biome; Aquatic, Desert, Forest, Grassland, Rainforest, Tundra. We will look briefly at each of the key features of the biomes in turn. Children will learn about the difference between weather and climate. The children will understand the idea of longitude and latitude and how our planet is split into; The Equator, Northern Hemisphere, Southern hemisphere, the Tropics of Capricorn and Cancer, and the Arctic and Antarctic Circle. We will have discussions about where the hottest and coldest places on earth are. The children will then develop knowledge that extreme weather conditions can create extreme weather events such as storms and hurricanes. The children will then study another extreme weather event, the Tsunami and discuss how it is a serious of extremely destructive waves that cause mass destruction and devastation. Following this the children will produce a newspaper report on the extreme weather that they worked on. They will finish by providing a shared example and talk through each of the key features used.

Year 3 have thoroughly enjoyed learning about Ancient Greece. This week, we learned that the Olympics were created in ancient Greek times. This was a time when the states stopped fighting each other and competed ina  number of athletic events. We compared the games from ancient times with modern day Olympic activities.

A Royal Celebration!

User Rating:  / 1

Today the children have been having lessons linked to The Royal Family and The Royal Wedding. All of the children in Year Three have dressed as princes, princess or in red, white and blue. In English, the children found out who was who? This involved them reading an extract of text and mapping out the Queen’s nearest family members. They learnt all about The Queen’s children and grandchildren. In addition to this, the children design a wedding dress and wedding gift suitable for a member of the royal family. All the children had a lovely picnic in the sunshine! It was a fantastic day full of excitement and celebration.

Mary Quant

This week Year Three have been lucky enough to take part in tie-dying. We completed our "Cool Dude" topic by designing and making tier-dye pieces of fabric. We then used running stich to sew a Patten onto our fabric. The patterns were inspired by Mary Quant and famous fashion designer. We used colours, shapes and patterns that were used in 1960s fashion. The children showed lots of perseverance practising their running stitch. Their final products looked amazing!

The Borrowers

User Rating:  / 1

This Half term Year Three have been reading The Borrowers. They have been developing lots of skills. For example, using their APE skills to answer a range of questions and using a dictionary to check the meaning of unknown words. To make sure the children really understand the text, they have been wringing out the meaning of certain phrased used by the author and backing up all explanations with proof from the text. In golden time, the children got to watch the film and compare the similarities and differences to the text.

World Book Day in Year 3

User Rating:  / 1

Year 3 had a great time learning all about the work of Beatrix Potter. The children focused on the story of Peter Rabbit and created setting descriptions for Mr Mcgregors garden, learnt how to measure the perimeter of his garden and used Typography to create beautiful representations of Peter in words. The children's favourite part of the day was spending time with the children in the nursery and sharing books with them.
